Data Example

Western Blot Detection of Human Max antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human Max by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of LNCaP human prostate cancer cell line and PC-3 human prostate cancer cell line. Gels were loaded with 20 µg of cytoplasmic (Cyto) and 10 µg of nuclear extracts (Nuc). PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human Max Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4304) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band for Max was detected at approximately 28 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Max

Max is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper (bHLHZ) family of transcription factors. Max is able to form homodimers and heterodimers with other family members (Mad, Mxi1, and Myc). These homodimers and heterodimers compete for a common DNA target site (the E box (CACGTG)). MYC:MAX heterodimers are associated with transcriptional activation and cellular proliferation, whereas, the MAD:MAX heterodimers are associated with transcriptional repression and cellular differentiation. Max has six alternatively spliced transcript variants.
